Is there a security light on or flashing when you try to start it?

Yeah, I saw that. Thought it may have been a mistake but i doubt it being it's a V20.

If the year is correct it won't have one. That would also mean that the dash cluster has no bearing on the running of the car as it would with later models.

Is the starter cranking normally?

The truck turns over. But the fuel pump is not coming on at all and I tested it and. It still works properly checked the wires and the grounds to the front of vehicle and I got nothing. I have lost the wire as it enters the vehicle but hopefully find it when I get home and continue tracing it. I am really at a loss of what it could be

Does it come on for 2 seconds when the key is first turned on?

That's pretty odd because the dash cluster has nothing to do with the fuel pump.

If it has dual tanks, maybe you had a connection problem with the fuel tank selector switch?
